I adapted this cookie recipe from Melanie over at My Kitchen Cafe. I adore her blog. I think if I met her in real life we would be great friends. Not only does she cook the same way I do, she has four boys just like me. We go to the same church. Yep, we’d be friends. 🙂
- 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 1 1/4 cups butter, softened
- 3 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 3 cups freshly ground white wheat flour
- 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 1/2 cups oats (I used quick oats)
- 2 1/2 cups chocolate chips
Cream butter and sugars till creamy.
Beat in eggs and vanilla.
Stir in dry ingredients, oats, and chocolate chips. Mix well.
Drop by rounded spoonfuls on lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for 9-10 minutes.
-Make sure you use freshly ground white wheat flour. Hard red wheat or whole wheat flour from the store will NOT produce the same results.
-I sometimes use M&M's in place of half of the chocolate chips. Yum!
